  • The Human Security Report Project has a blog devoted to Pakistan.
  • More ructions at Caijing magazine.
  • Two data points on the fall of the Berlin Wall: first, the whole thing was precipitated by a fluffed line at a press conference; and second, westward emigration in fact began in Hungary some months earlier.

  • Operation Orchard: The inside story of Israel's air raid on Syria's nuclear reactor.
